My love of art started when I was a little girl playing with sidewalk chalk on my grandparents' driveway. Over the years I dabbled in many mediums from charcoal to altered books and everything in between. Following my creative path, I spent over 5 years living and working at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies where I was exposed to different types of artists such as visionary artist Alex Grey.
In 2005, I moved to Costa Rica to 'get back to nature' and study the local medicinal plants & herbs. While I always had an interest in visual arts, it was there that my love of photography grew. Upon returning to America, my desire was to live in a vibrant, art-rich culture. Among other cities, I made several visits to Asheville before officially making it my home in 2007.
Today my interest lies in mixed media collage where I can combine all my favourite mediums into one piece. My current body of work includes photography, fiber art, jewelry and sculpture. My work to can be found in high-end boutiques in Brooklyn, NY; Miami Beach, FL and Los Angeles, CA. My jewelry can also be found in select stores in San Jose and Dominical, Costa Rica.
My work often reflects my love affair with with nature and I am continually inspired by Asheville's local art & music scene. Believing it’s important to contribute to the community, I often donate my work for charity auctions and gift 20% of my net profit to local and international charities.
I am grateful for my ever evolving journey and welcome new opportunities with an open heart & open mind.
